Yes, I know, another project. But dude. This one hit hard. The idea was originally just Wilson/Cameron... but then this couldn't be avoided. So I decided to go for it, especially after all the feedback Karrie's been giving me. So... without further ado...

... *drumroll* ...



Easier To Lie
Chapter: Prologue
Pairing: James Wilson/Allison Cameron/Jack Shephard
Rating: PG, for now.
Disclaimer: FOX and David Shore = House. ABC and JJ Abrams = Lost. I don't own them, nor do I claim to. Kay? Kay. Also, any misused medical jargon is purely unintentional; as much research as can be done by an 18 year old non-medically inclined House MD fan has been put into this to make it as genuine as humanly possible.
A/N:
- Any medical jargon that you don't understand and want to read up on can be found in your neighborhood encyclopaedia... or just wikipedia for you internet people.
- The concept of Jack/Cameron (and Wilson/Cameron/Shephard) came to me after I watched the two beautiful videos di_br made. Without that, I wouldn't be doing this. :)
- And also, a huge thank you to Karrie myst56 for being all fangirly over this. Much of this is for you. :D
- Only contains plot points revealed in S1.
- Lastly, if you have any questions about this fic/verse, feel free to ask. The only time I won't answer is if/when it reveals a plot point that I want to keep hidden 'til later in the story.


Overall Summary:
I try to be the one you want
I try to be the way you want
And maybe I could be the one you need
If you'll only... show me...

"What do we have?"

The nurse tried to keep up as Robert Chase rushed into the emergency room, where the patient was just brought in.

"Diarrhea... a lot of it. Type six on Bristol. Tremors of the arms and trunk. Cardiac arrhythmia..."

Chase looked at the patient's stats as she continued to speak. Numbers were skyrocketing above normal, various beeps and alarms were sounding, but the medical team stayed calm.

"...he complained of intense chest pains..."

"Warfarin," he alerted another nurse who had been waiting for his instructions. She returned with a syringe and handed it to Chase, watching him inject it into the patient. "It's afib... it caused the tachycardia," Chase announced, glancing up at the nurse when he was done. "Get Doctor Cameron in here."

Jack looked up at the sound of knocking against his glass window. He motioned for the visitor to enter before looking down at his work once more, not looking up as he spoke. "What can I do for you, Doctor Wilson?"

"I was hoping for a consult," he replied, passing the folder to Jack, who opened it to read the file.

"Amy Webber. Nine years old. Severe back pains..." Jack trailed off and his eyes widened. "Osteosarcoma? On the spine?"

Wilson nodded grimly. "It's the first I've ever seen or even heard of."

"How can this be possible?"

"We performed an x-ray, and a tumor was found. The CT, PET scan, and the MRI also confirmed the tumor presence... but only a biopsy can show if it's malignant or not," he explained.

As soon as Jack realised what Wilson was hinting at, he shook his head. "James... I'm not an orthopaedic oncologist. I can't do the biopsy."

"But you are the head of orthopaedic surgery. And I'm the head of oncology. And Doctor Cuddy is more willing to do this now than wait for an orthopaedic oncologist to fly in from San Francisco."

After pausing for a few more moments, Jack nodded, relenting, and stood. "I'll set the time. This afternoon?"

"Sure," Wilson nodded, following him out and walking with him towards one of the nurses stations. "Thank you, Jack."

He responded with a nod before averting his attention to the schedules the nurse handed to him. Wilson was about to walk away when Jack looked up.

"Oh, James?"

Wilson turned around and stopped.

"Your department's charity casino night is coming up next week," Jack said. "Formal, eh? I don't need to bring a date, do I?"

At the question, Wilson's expression grew slightly uncomfortable, though he tried his best to hide it. "You can bring whoever you want, Doctor Shephard."

Oh it'll be written. I promise. Eventually. (Much of it has been, already. I'm just not satisfied with it yet).

As for Pancakeverse, that will very much be a collab between myself and Stacy. So don't worry about that either.

But as of this very momoment, 1:15am, I'M TOTALLY DISTRACTED BY THIS.

PS: YOU CAN'T REALLY DETERMINE THAT NOW CAN YOU. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

I envy the fact you guys always come up with such awesome crossover ships.

Rooting for Camerson! ..'cos Jack has Juliet and Wilson has no one. shush, I know it's AU, teehee.

AND I CAN TOTALLY SEE JACK WORKING AT PPTH! That would be aslkjdlkdjfkjkdsjAWESOME.

Looking forward to more! ♥

I must say, I can't take all the credit for this.

the first and second vids in this playlist were made by the same person (check out the rest, though). Ever since I saw House S2, I couldn't help but notice all of the Wilson/Cameron moments.

When I saw the Jack/Cameron video (the second vid), everyone was all OMG IT'S JACK/CAMERON!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But what I really noted was that it was OMG WILSON/CAMERON/JACK TRIANGLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That person could have easily used House/Cam footage... but she used Wilson/Cam.

I'm just bringing it to life. :)


HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, I'm rooting for ______________________, but that doesn't mean that they're gonna end up together. ;)

Thanks, dear. :D

I did notice some Wilson/Cam, but I didn't think too much of it. Especially Merry Little Christmas, have you seen it? and rofl, I totally know who you're rooting for! XD

Meh. House/Cam. *shudders* I'd take Wilson/Cam any day, plz.



... okay I just saw the Jack/Cam vid.. and all I can say is.. WOW. Not 'cos of the ship, but just how amazingly well done it is. Wow.

Okay, I don't know WHY, but since I think these guys will be fighting over Cameron, I imagined this line: "But you are the head of orthopaedic surgery. And I'm the head of oncology. And Doctor Cuddy is more willing to do this now than wait for an orthopaedic oncologist to fly in from San Francisco." said with enough hidden malice to give me chills. Very teasing prolouge!

MORE SOON! :D Thank you for your feedback, dear. I love it when I write things that I can actually imagine the characters saying. There's a sense of accomplishment when something like that happens. ♥

[LJ hates me... I've been trying to comment here for a while!]
I already left a comment on cameron_wilson, but I thought I'd stop by and leave another one here. :))

I just can't believe that my vid inspired something like this!! OMG! OMG! OMG! Wilson/Cameron/Shephard!!!! I love you for writing this!!!

Please, please, pleeeeease post more of this soon!
I don't know who I'm rooting for here. Wilson/Cameron has always been my House OTP, but I've turned myself into a Jack/Cameron fan too... So I think I'll be happy with either of them!

Oh, much of this is definitely in the works! It's taken over my life these past few days, hahaha. :D

I'm really really glad that it got your interest though; I'm truly honoured.

I remember watching She Will Be Loved & By The Way and just having my jaw drop from their amazingness.

Thank you so much. :D

Really interesting idea. This could make for a fascinating triangle, since both Wilson and Jack are supposed to be good guys, but really aren't all that good when you get right down to it. I'm curious - is this meant to take place before the events of Lost, or after their (presumable) rescue from the island?

EXACTLY. God... exactly.

And your question is a very good one! As of this moment; the crash never occurred - either it hasn't yet, or Jack wasn't on it. To be honest, I haven't decided whether to incorporate more Lost elements into the story, because at the moment, it's more like I took the character of Jack Shephard and placed him at PPTH. Who knows; maybe I will incorporate the Lost events somehow. But right now, everything is definitely pre- or no-crash. XD

I hope my rambly explanation made sense. XD Thanks again for asking that question.

Sure, it makes sense. It'd be a lot easier to write, I'd imagine, without the events of Lost to try and work around. Still, Jack was probably a very different sort of person before the crash (a little more black and white, little less gray area). Something with his father might be interesting to see, to offer up a compliment/contrast to Wilson and his fidelity issues.

It's actually funny of you to mention this, because out of everything that came along with Jack Shephard's character, Christian was the one thing that I had every intention of incorporating into this story.

Maybe I shouldn't have said that, but I doubt many other people will read this comment, anyway.

But thank you for this feedback. It's much appreciated.
